Nominations of BEST FASHION AWARDS 2010

The main aim of the BEST FASHION AWARDS is to objectively determine and introduce the leaders of Ukrainian fashion to the national and international community. It is worth noting the achievements of designers in the development of fashion, the creation of the fashion industry and a positive image of Ukraine abroad.

The award is intended to increase the authority of Ukrainian designers in the country and inspire designers in creative search and professional growth.

The BEST FASHION AWARDS will be held annually and evaluate the collections of two seasons. The fate of the official awards will be decided by a group of experts, which will include fashion journalists, fashion critics, buyers and opinion leaders.

"For outstanding contribution to the development of Ukrainian fashion"
The award is given to a designer whose name has become synonymous with Ukrainian fashion or the fashion industry, whose work inspires new generations of fashion designers or brings the domestic fashion industry to the international level.
